  • Agreed, it isn't most exciting ruined temple you'll ever come across, but the views are wonderful, and you really should do the circuit of the island of Poros once on your stay, so it's worth a stop. ...  read more »
  • You need a car or bike to travel out to the ruins. Its a very warm place so make sure to have water and sunscreen. There are only ground ruins left and so its hard to work out what the buildings were....  read more »
  • The ruins of this temple are in fact only a few stones scattered on the floor, surrounded by a fence to abandonment. Fortunately, the visit is not paid even if the term of visit is a little overused. The positive point is the beautiful view, take these ruins as a step of 10 minutes during the tour of the island in quad or scout!

  • the key attraction at the Cape Sounion site is certainly the temple of Poseidon. A great place for some photos. If you can visit near /at sunset, the views can be very impressive. During our May visit the closing time was straight after sunset, perfect! Lots of people were there to enjoy it.
  • This is definately one of the most impressive Temples as it looms up on the hill.Even from a distance it looks impressive.The gates up to the temple close at sunset as its is an impressive sight as the sun goes down.4 euros or 2 for seniors.There is a restaurant there too.
  • Magnificent view overlooking the wine dark Aegean. This temple has a specialness to it...perhaps from the view or perhaps because it in enrobed in the mythology of Theseus and his father Kind Aegeus (for whom the Aegean is named) Aegeus flung himself from this very cliff when he thought his son Theseus was lost to him. Theseus had gone to slay the Minotaur on Crete, but alas, upon his return he forgot to change his sails (which was the signal to his father that he was alive) and the King, bereft, dove into the sea. Theseus built this Temple to Poseidon in his father's name. Powerful stuff. Powerful temple in extraordinary location. Grab an ice cream at the cafe...great views of the Temple from there and a respite from the heat.
  • Unforgettable experience. It's a must for everyone who wants to see archeological sites outside Athens. Except for the temple of Poseidon, there's also the fortress, the sanctuary of Athena and the ship decks.
  • A place of great beauty. One of the most important archaeological sites in the Attica region. Only 60 km from the centre of the city. A very nice day trip.
